Roos through to grand fi­nal

Joondalup Times - - SPORT -

WAN­NEROO is through to the Premier T20 de­cider af­ter two im­pres­sive fi­nals vic­to­ries on Sun­day.

The Roos thrashed Su­bi­aco Floreat by 104 runs in the semi-fi­nal be­fore de­feat­ing Mt Law­ley by 49 runs in the pre­lim­i­nary.

Against the Lions, a 96-run open­ing part­ner­ship from Max Holden (61) and Rob Richards (35) gave Wan­neroo a solid launch­ing pad from which to build a com­pet­i­tive 172 at Breck­ler Park.

Su­bi­aco Floreat’s re­sponse was al­most non-ex­is­tent, scram­bling to 27 be­fore los­ing three wick­ets in a row for nought on its way to mea­gre 68.

Against the Hawks, it was Wan­neroo’s bowlers who took charge, keep­ing Mt Law­ley to 90 in de­fence of a pre­car­i­ous 139.

Mathew Dzod­zos (3-14) and Rob Richards (3-7) were Wan­neroo’s best with the ball.

Wan­neroo faces Melville in the grand fi­nal on Jan­uary 28. It was a pos­i­tive fin­ish to the week­end for Wan­neroo af­ter the side lost to Rock­ing­ham Man­durah in the WA Premier Cricket two-day clash on Satur­day.

The Mariners bowled out the Roos for 197 in de­fence of 299.

Chris­tian Smith (39) and Kyle Millar (30) top scored.
